Bamboo Bicycle Facts
Bamboo Bikes are not as easy to build as one may think. The average Bamboo Bike takes between 40 to 45 hrs. There are many reasons for this. One reason is the each pieces of the Bamboo Bike needs to be joined together. These joints are mended together with several types of fiber. Abaca fiber & Carbon Fiber are the most widely used, either alone or together. The overall strength of the Bamboo Bike is determined not as much from the Bamboo as from the quality of the joints. So each joint needs to be custom made and done correctly otherwise it will not pass the strength testing. Creating a Bamboo Bike is an art and when done correctly can provide an amazing final product. So keep in mind, when you see the price of these Bamboo Bikes, that the reason they are sometimes pricey, is because they take a lot of effort and time to make them safe and strong.
